Wilhelm Kempff

Piano Transcriptions (CD)

This is simply sublime! Kempff's transcriptions of Bach, Handel and Gluck aren't that often heard, yet his way with such favourites as 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring', 'Nun komm' der Heiden Heiland', 'In dulci jubilo', two pieces from Gluck's 'Orfe and the unforgettable Handel G minor Minuet are ravishing! In addition, Kempff performs two great Bach keyboard suites.
